The molecular imprinting matrix is developed strategically by molecular modelling via density functional theory. 3-Thiophene acetic acid was predicted as suitable functional monomer for imprinting ethionamide. Polymeric film was formed on the surface of glassy carbon electrode by electropolym...

The Spanish cattle TB surveillance system consists of three components: a) routine skin testing, b) slaughterhouse surveillance, and c) pre-movement controls. Our objectives were to assess the effectiveness of the whole surveillance system and evaluate th...
